Which Property Survey is the right choice?

    Building Survey in South Hylton

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in South Hylton and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the South Hylton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will give an in-depth analysis of the South Hylton property's condition along with an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

For more details you can get a South Hylton Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should I look into gutters? And could it affect the property value?

I find it odd that this issue is overlooked by buyers. If you have only visited the home in dry weather, issues may have been hidden.

Signs that drainage are at risk include rusted iron elements. This could then result in staining of wallpaper and damp.

In most cases, drainage problems are quite easy to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive.

Gas flame

Will a qualified surveyor check the serviceability of the gas installations?

A qualified RICS surveyor will visually check the accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at gas heaters for instance, in addition to gas related appliances or installations for example - chimney breasts or flues. Fittings won't be taken off. The gas system won't be tested at all. Most people are aware that gas is potentially dangerous and if there are any worries about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the South Hylton home survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a retaining wall) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report on a South Hylton property will include a surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost as part of the survey. In order to determine the market value your independent surveyor will refer to knowledge of South Hylton as well as other factors about the property e.g. accommodation The valuer will also consider style of architecture and make certain other assumptions, for example no damaging building techniques have been employed.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further area conjectures like service connections, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like local industry, also being considered.
